13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
Inside little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket. In envelope 2 are directions to a specific London flat. The note in envelope 3 tells Ginny: Find a starving artist. Because of envelope 4, Ginny and a playwright/thief/ bloke–about–town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous–though utterly romantic–results. But will she ever see him again? Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it’s all because of the 13 little blue envelopes.
So, this book was written by Maureen Johnson. Which basically means that it is most likely hilariously funny and amazing.
But, I can't say that this was one of my favorite books. It was light and funny and a nice read. But, it took me awhile to "get into".
The journey that Ginny makes is really cool and adventuress. I wish I could travel like her some day. The places she travels to are amazing! Maureen writes her books beautifully, and this was no exception!
